Just like the organisers predicted, Day 1B of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event attracted a massive field. A total of 649 players entered the second starting day and lots of familiar faces could be spotted at the tables, including actor Jason Alexander, sports star Michael Phelps and poker pros Tom Dwan, Phil Hellmuth, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi and Phil Ivey.
Approximately 375 players made it through the day and will join the 150 or so from Day 1A for Day 2. Of the people mentioned above, Grospellier, Alexander and Tom Dwan failed to make it through Day 1B. “The Grinder” played extremly well and accumulated a stack of 216,900 – about 40k less than the chip leader Ashton Griffin (253,700), who is the overall chip leader heading into Day 2.

PCA 2013: Good day for Nicolas Godoy as Day 2 passes at warp speed
Near-earth asteroid Apophis is going to whiz by Earth tonight but it won’t cause nearly the breeze as the second day of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure main event.
In an afternoon that hemorrhaged players like a razor-cut artery, Day 2 ended prematurely with Nicolas Godoy as the chip leader. He bagged up 724,200 in chips to carry to Day 3. He’ll get a couple more hours sleep thanks to how fast the field fell apart today.
Godoy may be ready for sleep, but it was Day 2 chip leader Ashton Griffin who looked as if he needed a nap. Though Griffin had the overall lead to start the day, he also apparently had a bad case of the sleepies. By the fifth level of the day, Griffin was literally nodding off at the table.
Griffin somehow survived with 123,900 and has another chance to get a good night’s rest before returning to play tomorrow.
You’ll be able to see a full list of the remaining players on our 2013 PCA main event live coverage section as soon as the information is available.
